What were his stats in the Ritter game? Not being sarcastic, it feels like it was so long ago I can’t remember. I thought he had a couple picks that game but not sure.JJ McCarthy. Convince me otherwise. All he's done since the Ritter game is throw for 2600 yards 32 Tds 5 Ints
1st team Macon. Those numbers are disgusting.
2nd team Tumilty. Unbelievable numbers with nowhere near the talent ESL and Naz has.
Hon Men- McCarthy, Lynch, NV QB, and Hersey QB
I totally respect this.McCarthy.
He is the best high school quarterback that I have seen play here. Ever.
Sure the talent around JJ helps him but that kid IS THE REAL DEAL.Need to look beyond just the passing stats... some times they can be deceiving based on the offense that is run or the strength of the teams they played. QB has to be the most valuable player on his team whether passing, running, leadership or how they performed when the pressure is... do they have great talent around them or do they make players around them better. I think Gronowski is the guy... Tumility could be right there to but haven’t seen him play live. I have watched McCarthy and Macon too but the talent around them makes them even better. All of them should be in consideration.
I think your one of the only WB posters on here. You guys were very hospitable on Saturday. When your school is 120 years old, you get a lot of old Alumni going to these games those golf carts were a God Send so we are very thankful.Tumilty. Some on here want to disparage the description of him being “dynamic”, but as the force driving an offense to a great season he is undeniable. Makes all the throws, makes all the reads in the RPO, and is another threat in the backfield to run. His all around play makes him the POY, but his QB play puts him neck and neck with McCarthy.
I have only seen McCarthy on film, and he will lead his team to the title Saturday night, but Tumilty gets my admittedly homer vote.
Not a big poster, but here is what I'm excited about the future of IL QBs.
The 2022 class is just getting revved up with Kaden Cobb and Dontrell Jackson.
Happy Thanksgiving to all your families! Enjoy the State Games this weekend
Let's not forget the only 2022 QB that was still playing QB this weekend...Jack Lausch from BR.
As far as JJ and Macon - they're both ridiculous regardless of the number of talented players around them.
Per comments above...
JJ - 2,781 yards | 33 TD | 9 INT | (Need rush td count)
Macon - 3,937 yards | 36 TD | 7 INT | 16 Rush TD
You have to give the nod to Macon. However, just because his stats are better doesn't mean he's a better QB...just has better stats. No need for hard feelings. ( MVP changes in NFL every year. All typically stat dependent. Doesn't mean the MVP is best QB in the league.)
Again, this is just playing the 'You have to pick a player or else..." game. As JJMAC said, they're both phenomenal QB's that don't need to be compared. We're fortunate to be able to watch them play in here in IL.
Can't wait to watch them on Saturdays.
Man...it is still mind boggling to me the coaching staff actually played that kid in a meaningless game. Beyond stupid
A player identified on the game day roster as Marvin Burks runs the ball against Nazareth in La Grange Park, Ill. on Friday, Aug. 31, 2019. The player has tattoos on his right arm remarkably similar to Lions running back Bill Jackson, who was supposed to be suspended for that game. Mike Mantucca, Special to STLhighschoolsports.com
This is still the caption from the game recap...
I totally respect this.
My only question - how many time have you seen JJ and how many times have you seen Tyler?
(Granted, that discounts your eye, which is not intended - so I guess the questions is: how much better is he?)
Oh I get it, there’s like 3-4 guys I would have no problem with if they were announced. Btw they have some talent. No where near the other big semi schools in 7/8 sans maybe RM but Willowbrook has some solid skills for sure..No one of note.
I would say POY because they would have won 1-2 games without him.

Agree. It will be interesting to see how Willowbrook does post Tumilty brothers. Although the last of the boys is a freshman.Of the 12 semifinal teams in 6A-8A they were definitely limited in the talent department. Great season, no question, but they are done after week 9 without Sam.
